Jenna's Field Trip
On Wednesday October 1st, Jenna's class, the Kindergarten of Chance Elementary, went on a Field Trip to Boonville MO to Arnett's Peach Tree Farm. Their website is www.thepeachfarm.com Besides the obvious Peaches that must happen during the summer, as the farm is scattered with dozens of trees. There are also several Pumpkin Patches, where you may pick your own Pumpkin to purchase. (the kids received theirs as part of the their entry fee) There are several farm animals to feed in assorted pens scattered all over the property. Other 'attractions' include a Straw Maze, which was a big hit. There was a hay ride and lots of area for the 100 kids to just run and have a great time. They are located off of I-70, just west of the Missouri River Bridge near Boonville, exit 111. This is a reasonably priced family fun place. Our family has enjoyed travelling south of Centralia to the farm of our friends Roger and Jill McCoy who also sell pumpkins in the fall. They are located on Route Z, south of Centralia. But it was certainly nice to discover another place to take the family on a drive in the fall.
Jenna is pictured with her friend Christina after they found their pumpkins. The group tried out all of the activities and then we had a picnic lunch before returning to school.
